  • Patent number: 10366056
    Abstract: Techniques and systems for completing a database query. A time to complete a synchronous query in response to receiving an original database query is estimated by a database management system provided by one or more computing devices. A synchronous database query corresponding to the original database query is performed with the database management system if the estimated time to complete the synchronous query is less than a pre-selected threshold time. One or more asynchronous queries corresponding to the original database query are performed with the database management system if the estimated time to complete the synchronous query is greater than the pre-selected threshold time. A result, whether from a synchronous query or one or more asynchronous queries, is stored in an object within a non-relational database system.

  • Patent number: 10346369
    Abstract: A storage system maintains copies of a source database to allow virtual databases to be provisioned. Transaction logs received from the source database are applied to database blocks stored in the storage system to update the database blocks. The storage system checks if there are defect in the transaction logs of the source database. If a defect in transaction logs is detected, the storage system obtains a latest copy of the source database. The storage system matches database blocks of the received copy with database blocks already available in the storage system to determine whether a corresponding database block is already available in the storage system. If a received database block is different from database blocks already available at the storage system, the received database block is stored in the storage system. The database blocks may be matched using a hash value of the database blocks.
